Home Buying in Orlando>Question Details

Eleni Aspras, Home Buyer in Maitland, FL

Can we loose our house that is under contract due to the bank that owns it went bankrupt?

Asked by Eleni Aspras, Maitland, FL Sat Jul 20, 2013

We are under contract on a forclosed house in Florida. We are purchasing it in cash. Our closing date has been pushed back 3 times because they found a lien on the house and they do not want to pay $18,000. We signed our papers and that has nothing to do with us. But now a new bank has our house because the other one went bankrupt suddenly. Can we loose this house now even though the last contract signed with the previous bank said that they would take care of the lien and they would be closing no matter what on august 9?

Hi Eleni,

This question is very specific regarding the performance of the contact. I would recommend you to speak with an attorney specialized in Real Estate especially if the agents and title company does not have a positive and quick reply from the new bank. The new bank may decide to sell or not the property, each bank is different.

Good Luck.
